It is finally that time of year! It is DECA Districts! This past Tuesday was the district competition for DECA and was arguably one for the books.
The Legend DECA program saw a great deal of state qualifiers, adding to the great year for the program. There were around sixty state qualifiers from Legend. This also lead to Legend winning the most awards in the competition.
The Legend DECA program’s success could also be attributed to the new changes implemented.
“I think this year was a lot better for DECA because we actually did roleplay practice in our business classes,” said senior Adit Desai. There was also a larger officer team allowing for more management and planning for the 100+ students in DECA.
“They did a good job of having a lot of practice sessions to practice our roleplay,” said senior Ashley Lawson. Lawson qualified for state along with her partner, senior Allison Kramer, in her event: Travel and Tourism.
Now the program looks at ahead towards the state competition.
“I joked with my partner that we were going to state,” said senior Ashley Lawson, “and now I am actually going! It has definitely made me very excited about DECA and going to the Broadmoor.”
The DECA state competition will occur from the 22nd to the 25th of February.
